About the event

Whether you are returning or brand new, the beginning of every school year is always crazy. What supplies do I get? Do I need my instrument the first day? Lockers? When is lunch? I can't answer all of those, but here's what you need to know about orchestra:


  • Please make arrangements to have all instruments rented by Monday, August 15th. Please see the "Local Vendors" page to rent an instrument
  • Violins and Violas - Do NOT bring your instruments on the first day of school. Bring them on Monday, August 14th.
  • Cellos and Basses - Do NOT bring your instruments to school. You will be assigned an instrument for campus use only
  • If you are new and unsure of your instrument, please check your schedules as you should already be assigned in orchestra


  • Acquire all necessary materials before the first day of school. There is a supply list HERE. There is also a printable version HERE
  • Returning students will need to make sure that they have their own rockstops, chinrests, and rosin. 

FIRST DAYS (8/9-8/11)

  • You don't need to bring your instruments the first three days (8/9-8/11), as the campus will be going over school procedures and expectations. 
  • I will be passing out instrument rental forms for those of you that are using school instruments. Please try to have them returned no later than Friday, 8/11. 
  • Friday 8/11 - There will be a dodgeball social right after school followed by a parent meeting at 5 PM. We will be going over details for the year's events as well as important things to know about orchestra this year!

Finally, be sure to check out the website for updates to the calendar, student handbook, and private lessons application form. If you are in need of financial assistance for renting an instrument or supplies, please fill out the "Financial Aid" application located HERE.

I am so excited to see you all this year!!!
